Escape to the Big Island and Visit the Best Beaches and Volcano National Park
About Anthony Panek
My wife and I currently live in Huntington Beach, CA. We have lived here since we've been married (35 Years), and this is the place where we raised our children. We love animals and currently have 4 dogs that we've rescued throughout the years. We love it here in Huntington Beach, but we also love the Big Island. We started going there with my sister, and we have completely fallen in love with the Island! This is what brought us to buying a 2nd home in Milolii which is located about an hour and 15 minutes south of the Kona Airport. We love the outdoors, and we love to explore all of the places in an around the Big Island. We try to spend as much time on the island as we can, and we hope to retire there in the future.
Anthony Panek purchased this House in 2016
Why Anthony Panek chose Captain Cook
We saw this property for the first time in 2016, and we basically rescued it! The house was vacant, and it needed a ton of work. The house has been completely remodeled inside and out, and we have furnished it with all "New" appliances, furnishings and beds. We also installed "Black-Out" blinds in the bedrooms so you escape the morning sun and sleep in when you really want to. Additionally, the house has a new entertainment system featuring a large screen, Smart TV, Blu-ray Disc Player, gaming system, a ton of movies, and Wireless Internet Connectivity. The property also has a new washer and dryer on the lanai that is available to our guests. This definitely comes in handy when you need to do a quick load of laundry prior to your next adventure! Because we purchased the house as our 2nd home, a lot of time and love has gone into the renovation process! Because this is our home, we haven't cut any corners throughout the renovation. It's quiet, comfortable and relaxing, and it's definitely a place you'll want to stay when you want to get away from the day to day grind!
What makes this House unique
The Milolii beach house has all of the creature comforts of home including a full size refrigerator and freezer, gas range, washer and dryer, large screen Smart TV with a Blu-Ray Disc player, and Wireless Internet Connectivity. The beds are brand new and super comfortable. You definitely won't have any problems going to sleep here! The house is located in the perfect part of the island and is 30 minutes to some of the best beaches and locations. You're an hour away from South Point, The Black Sand Beach and Hawaii Volcano's National Park. If you need to go to the city, you're an hour and twenty minutes from Kona and just under 2 hours from Hilo.

Wonderful Ocean visit
Anthony and Suzie were very helpful in being responsive and proactive in communicating about our stay. We particularly enjoyed the cool breeze on the lanai and we watched a few heavy rain storms as well. The house is located in a neighborhood built on the lava near an old fishing village. We splashed in the ocean minutes from the house and had a great time making our meals in the well appointed kitchen and using the gas grill on the lanai. It also bears saying that we were nicely situated about midway between Kona and Volcanoes National Park. We enjoyed being away from the bustle of Kona but with easy access. It was also easy to get to South Point and Punaluu black sand beach. In all, this was exactly the experience we hoped for!
We had a wonderful stay!! The house is amazing and the view incredible.
We loved our stay here! The house was wonderful. The owner and property manager were both super friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this beautiful home for the perfect Hawaii vacation!
A place meet our expectation
House is clean, has plenty of space. Bathroom and kitchen stuff are complete and ready for use, we find some bonus equipment for snorkel, which is great, the location is not 100% ideal for visiting west coast, but overall meet our expectation.
Nice and quiet
This is nice place off the highway. The 2 public beaches down the road were very secluded and not busy. Owner and manager were very helpful.
Beautifully decorated & felt like home
This house is a great little place to stay in Milolii! Love all the colors and personal touches everywhere!! Daniel the mgr is a great fun and caring person & so willing to help in any way! Appliances are top of line, beds very comfortable! My husband has a very bad lumbar, and he slept like a baby in that king bed!
Only minuses are no AC (but the tropical breezes are lovely and lots of fans) which in summer can get pretty warm inside... and only one bathroom. We 4 were gone all day every day, so it worked fine for us! We scuba dive and Milolii is a great shore dive place!
To be honest, I'm a little puzzled by this review. The guest talks about what a great place our home is to stay, how the appliances are top of the line, and how the beds are super comfortable where her husband with a bad back slept like a baby. The only issue was the fact that there is only one bathroom and no A/C. Well, we clearly state in the information that the house has one bathroom and no A/C. If that were an issue, then I would assume as a traveler you would look for a home with more than one bathroom and A/C and not have your review be reflective of something we don't offer when the details state those things aren't offered to begin with. We pride ourselves on offering our guests a beautiful home at a great price!
